. obama says the only way to continue investing in education research and development and still reverse the deficit is with a combination of spending cuts and additional revenues. republicans said the government got additional revenue with last year's tax agreement which raised tax rates on families making more than 450,000 a year and limited or phased out deductions for income over 300,000. in a statement john boehner said any tax loopholes we close should be used to lower rates for all taxpayers so we can be more xret ticompetitive and cree jobs. he reminded the whitous is missing the monday deadline for submitting a budget. >> it is going to be late. some say it could be as long as a month late. i think that's too bad. our economy could use some presidential leadership right now. >> house republicans want to force the president to submit a budget that would balance in 10 years. >> they hope to pass it in march unless they come up with a deficit reduction agreement before that. it would hurt readiness maintenance and training and make it difficult for the u.s. to respond to global cri

. the peace walk is really telling young people to choose education over guns, not to solve your problems with gun violence but with diplomacy and that's so important and with all of this gun violence happening around america, the stand your ground law, mr. roberts, is a law that in trayvon's situation makes no sense. how can you be the aggressor, how can you initiate the confrontation and then say, after i shoot a kid in the heart, i was just standing my ground? so this trayvon martin amendment to the stand your ground law, simply, you can't be aggressor and start the confrontation and then claim that you stood your ground. >> mr. crump, i want to talk to you about what took place in court this week. zimmerman and his side were trying to push more time before going to trial. explain what happened in court and then who was witness number eight? >> certainly. on february 5th, which would have been trayvon martin's 18th birthday, we had a scheduled court hearing to talk about different issues in the trial and that courtroom on that day, the spirit of trayvon martin was definitely in the cou

is that we really do have to continue to educate the public. that's where the real action will be. yes, you'll have leadership in the senate and house talking back and forth, but the reality for some of us who have been in town in washington is that we've got to make some movement. and the political will of the republicans, i think, to engage with the latino community is somewhat real in certain sectors. you still have to remember the makeup of congress is still dominated by individuals who don't represent minority districts. so that's going to be the real test. my hat goes off to the new members of the house and the senate and the reality that latino -- the dreamers and other people are realizing how important it is. this is an economic issue as much as a security issue. >> i think it's important to underscore that it's the first great step, that there's a bipartisan group in the senate working on this, that there's a group also meeting in the house working on this. >> you're actually me not to harsh the mellow too soon. we should be applauding -- >> i think you're right. the devil is in t
